The World is on Fire
October 9, 2017 9:48pm CST
...At least here in Northern California. Two neighboring counties, Butte and Yuba Counties, are under evacuation due to wide-spreading wildfires that have destroyed tons of homes already. We have an evacuation center set up here in my town at our fairgrounds. The governor has declared a state of emergency and FEMA and the National Guard are supposed to be sent in to help out. We're not the only area that's burning. Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, and Anaheim counties are also on fire. I saw on the news that the sky above Disneyland is orange, smoke is choking the air and ashes are falling on the "happiest place on Earth." I guess my stepdaughter's aunt and uncle picked a bad time to take their trip. I joked that it's because her mother is there with them, she is causing it to rain ashes on Disneyland. All joking aside, things look pretty dire here in California right now. It has especially been a bad year up here where I live, particularly for Butte County. In February we had a mass evacuation due to Oroville Dam's emergency spillway coming dangerously close to failing. In the summer parts of Butte County had to evacuate due to forest fires; now this. I hope the firefighters are able to get all these fires under control and that more people don't lose their homes. Right now things are pretty devastating for the families affected.
